What is a whitpot?

I have a recipe written by my grandmother, four times removed, for apple whitpot. Although I have followed her recipe and loved it, I created my own adaptation which I think you will enjoy immensely, especially with the holidays coming right up. Apparently my ancestor meant to write 'whitepot,' but she missed the 'e.' This rice dish is, or rather was, so-named because it was a recipe that was pure white, even when cooked in a pot. She mentioned that it was eaten while hot, with stewed wild strawberries and blackberries. In England, it is still eaten with fruit preserves mixed in for breakfast.
